Samsung officially unveils Galaxy S4 Zoom with 10x optical zoom camera Samsung has made their camera/smartphone hybrid official.
The device is notable thanks to a large 16MP CMOS sensor and 10x optical zoom lens with dual Xenon flash and optical image stabilization.

Additionally, the phone runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, has a 4.3 inch qHD sAMOLED (960x540) display, 1.5GB RAM, an unspecified 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 8GB internal storage expandable with microSD.

"The Samsung GALAXY S4 zoom represents yet another step forward in the way Samsung is working to enhance the lives of our customers around the world," said JK Shin, President and CEO, Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. "As communication continues to become increasingly visual in nature, people wish to capture and share their moments in the highest quality possible, but often do not have the space or inclination to carry a dedicated camera for this purpose. The GALAXY S4 zoom changes this forever, combining the industry leading functionality and connectivity of the GALAXY S4 with the high quality photographic experience you'd expect from a compact camera. The result is truly the best of both worlds, without compromise."

I honestly don't see this product as a "step forward" because this would assume this is what the general public wants and I am not convinced that it is true.

So what if it's not what the "general public wants"?


You're thinking it's a phone with a compact camera added... it's not, it's a compact camera with a phone added.
